I think setting up a local web server on your system is one of the initial steps you take if you are a web developer. Having done a similar post for windows Doing this for a mac seemed a subsequent step. On a mac this process is a bit easier than that on windows. The only thing you will need is a MAMP server package. MAMP stands for Mac Apache MySql Php server. This lets you run a web server with a php engine and an sql server which is mostly what you need to run a website. You can download the package from here. read more

Apple devices have a feature called AirPlay in them which allow you to stream audio as well as video (from newer devices) to some AirPlay enabled device such as an Airport Extreme. But buying an airport device and also a separate set of speakers unique with it just to stream music seems useless. To get around this condition all you need is an old windows machine. You can disguise your windows machine as an Airplay device and the mac or your iphone will wirelessly send the audio to the windows machine. read more

Being a server administrator I have to deal with a hell lot of ip address and domain names. One of the major problem that I face while configuring a server is sometimes I have to change ip addresses to different domain names for certain purposes and when you go to test if you have successfully established a connection or not the computer gives you an error just because it still has that old ip address in the memory and is constantly trying to connect to a dead ip.
This might be a useful feature for average users who visit Facebook and YouTube dozen of times a day as it reduces the time the browser takes to download pages from the servers of the websites by eliminating the need for a DNS server by caching the most visited url. read more
